THREE HEARTS--For a shifter anthology, this didn't deliver as expected. (avg. doesn't include the 2nd story)

Wolf in King's Clothing by Parker Foye - 3.5-3.75 Hearts

They call him "Prince".

A half breed, small assassin that has had the worst life ended up being my favorite of the anthology, go figure?



The unlikely hero who has been shat on, exiled and doesn't speak due to lacking social manners? My toes couldn't stop curling. Set in alternate Victorian period where werewolves are known, "Prince" aka Kent doesn't really kfigure?

Wolf in King's Clothing- 1 star
The Alpha's Claim- 2 stars
Dark Water- 4 stars

The fact that Dark Water is the last in this anthology makes me sad, mostly for the fact that I almost gave up on the book without reading that story. And that would have been a mistake.

Wolf in King's Clothing had an interesting idea but the writing was terrible. There was no sense of time or setting. The fight scenes were confusing and the dialogue was choppy. Which is disappointing because the set-up with collared shifters and wardings had a lot of potential.

Two out of three good stories isn't bad I guess.

3.5 stars overall

I haven't read a lot of M/M shifter stories so I was happy to pick this one up to review via NetGalley.

The first story, Wolf in King's Clothing, was just plain confusing to me. It's set in York, England, 1912 but that wasn't the problem. I've read several his

Primal Need: Sexy Male/Male Shifter Anthology contains the following full length stories, Wolf in King's Clothing by Parker Foye, The Alpha's Claim by Holley Trent, and Dark Water by K.L. White. Each story is very unique and also release on its own. We have already reviewed Ms. Trent's book, and it is a must read for any paranormal shifter lover.


Wolf in King's Clothing by Parker Foye is 32,000 words long. I found myself very drawn to this story. It is the first in the anthology

I am not usually a fan of anthologies so that may be the root of the dissatisfaction I felt with this book.

Title: The Alpha's Claim
Author: Holley Trent
My Rating: B+



My Review:
Um, okay? Did I read the same book as everyone else (looking at all the really low rated reviews) because I really, really enjoyed this one.

This story is about Teddy, a human waiter/actor who is tired of getting stiffed by the local motorcycle guys when they sit in his section of iHop super late at night. Jim is a coyote shifter and alpha of his pack. He's also super-rich. He's onl

3 Stars - Wolf in King's Clothing by Parker Foye was a good read. I would have liked more for Kent’s character but overall, I did enjoy the story.

2 Stars The Alpha's Claim by Holley Trent. I felt I was missing something with this book and the story seemed to drag at times. I hoped for more from this book

4 Stars Dark Water by K.L. White. I really enjoyed this one. From the unique world building to the character interaction this one was a joy to read. I look forward to read

I HATE rating anthologies, I've said this a dozen times! But I adored the second story in this one, definitely looking forwarded to more from that author. The first story was super interesting and I hope there's more set in that world but it took me a bit to get into it, it started out weird but idk how best to explain what I mean. And the third had butt loads of potential but probably should have either been a full novel or had one or two plot threads taken out. There was just a lot happening i ...more

3.5/5 - this was a pretty good anthology, though I wish it were a little longer. Since this includes three stories, I'll review them separately.

Wolf in King's Clothing by Parker Foye - 3/5
I really loved the premise of this book, but it could have been written better. I know the blurb says "desire so intense it could be the death of them both" but I didn't feel that at all. There was a little bit of lust floating around, but neither one of them really made it apparent until the end and any lusty internal dialogueseparately.

Parker Foye writes speculative-flavoured romance under the QUILTBAG umbrella and believes in happily ever after, although sometimes their characters make achieving this difficult.

An education in Classics nurtured a love of heroes, swords, monsters, and beautiful people doing stupid things while wearing only scraps of leather. You’ll find those things in various guises in Parker’s stori
